Procession of the Honorable Wood of the Life-Giving Cross of the Lord (First of the three “Feasts of the Savior” in August) - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

O Lord, save Your people, / And bless Your inheritance! / Grant victories to the Orthodox Christians / Over their adversaries. / And by virtue of the Cross, / Preserve Your habitation!

Kontakion — Tone 4

As You were voluntarily crucified for our sake, / Grant mercy to those who are called by Your name; / Make all Orthodox Christians glad by Your power, / Granting them victories over their adversaries, / By bestowing on them the invincible trophy, Your weapon of peace!
